View on win2K explorer that shows shared folders?

hi,

Most of the time i shared my folders for my colleagues to access some files. But many i forgot to remove the share once they are done. Then my shared folders has piled up on the "my network places" when mapping/looking  for computers.

As i check on my PC, there are already a lot of shared folders and i want now to remove them. Instead of guessing where could that folder resides, is  there a way i can view all the shared folder and then removed the share? Or what is the quickest way to remove all my shared folders?

Thanks.

You can also view your shares this way:

Click Start->Run->Compmgmt.msc
Under System Tools\Shared Folders\Shares
(You can still highlight one or all and right-click/stop sharing)

Start->Run->CMD

 NET SHARE

will show you your shares...
Or you can possibly group select them (drag and select) and right-click, disconnect...

Hi numero9868,

If you are talking about removing the connections on the machine accessing the share, try this:

Start>Run>CMD

Net use * /delete

Hope this helps!

To select individual ones from that list.  Click the first one, hold CTRL while you click each other one.
To select a range of shares, click the first one, hold SHIFT and click the last one.
Right-click/stop sharing...

thanks for the quick reply.

But i'm not the one who has many mapped folders. I am the who gives or who shares my folders. Mostly the shared folders are inside my "D drive" and i already forgot where arethese folders located on my D drive that's i want to know if theres a view in wondows explorer that will show all these shared folders. Then that would be easy to make the right click-->sharing--> "do not share this folder" .

Right- click on "my computer", choose "manage".
Expand "shared flders" , and go to your "sharings".
There, you will find both administrative  and your personal sharings.
Right click on the sharing you don't want to share anymore and just choose "stop sharing".
(I'm not sure about the names I've used, I'm using an italian installation, but it should be clear enough. If it's not, let me know...)

Yes - from Computer Management.
Try it this way - right-click My Computer and click Manage.
Then go to System Tools\Shared Folders\Shares.

You should find all the shares there, regardless of where the folders are located...

Right-clicking My Computer/Manage is the same as
Start->Run->Compmgmt.msc

sirbountyCommented:
If you're showing Administrative Tools on Start menu - use those - otherwise, they should be in control panel...

sirbountyCommented:
You can control whether or not the Administrative Tools menu shows up on the Start Menu/
Right-click the Task Bar/Properties.  On the Advanced tab, check the box for Display Administrative Tools...
